I lost count of how many hours I spent trying to beat it when I played through ages ago, probably on the last gen systems, before giving up. Decided to give it a go with a hexer yesterday, and beat it on the first try. It was almost laughably easy. No more one-shot fire breath. This of course pleased me, since now Vendrick will be a pushover. Was the dragon changed for the Scholar edition, or was it later in a calibration?

I noticed the same thing, and simultaneously noticed that Gower's Ring had been nerfed as well.

The challenge is gone, but admittedly Ancient Dragon was a pretty cheap boss.

I still remember how uber Lightning and Resonant Soul were when the game came out, but that's totally not true anymore either.

in my experience for a quality build it's easier to just bring two or three weapons and kill vendrick without the souls.
